Financial Aid

Review financial aid and complete verification process, if necessary.

Financial Aid – Once you have been accepted to NSC, you will be able to view your financial aid on the NSC portal.

Review your financial aid and deduct the estimated cost of tuition to calculate any out-of-pocket expenses.

DACA/Immigrant students must complete a Non-Federal Aid Application for financial aid options.

Acknowledgement of the Millennium Scholarship – Students are initially notified of their eligibility for the Millennium Scholarship program in early August following high school graduation. Qualifying students will receive an award letter from the State Treasurer’s Office describing the terms and conditions of the scholarship program. To receive funding, students are required to complete the Acknowledgement of Award process online.

Financial Aid Verification – The financial aid verification process is required by the U.S. Department of Education. Institutions are required to collect and maintain specific documentation on selected FAFSA records before disbursing federal funds.

Approximately 30% of students who submit a FAFSA will be federally selected for verification. Students who are selected for verification must submit the requested documents in order to receive their financial aid.

If you are selected for verification, you will be notified in one of two ways:

· You will receive an email from VGCS@inceptia.org

· You will receive a postcard from Inceptia with NSC’s unique website link to start the verification process.

We encourage you to begin the verification process within 7 days of receiving notification from Verification Gateway to ensure you receive your financial aid in time for the payment due date. Failure to complete the verification process could result in the delay or denial of your financial aid.

Visit NSC’s Financial Aid website for more information or Inceptia’s Verification Gateway to complete the process.

Tuition Deadline – Last day to pay tuition online without penalties has yet to be announced.

If your financial aid is still pending and you have an outstanding balance on the day of the tuition payment deadline, it is suggested that you sign up for a payment plan to avoid being dropped from your classes.

A payment plan option breaks your educational costs into easy to handle monthly payments rather than paying for the entire semester in one large sum. You can enroll in the payment plan with your MyNSC account. There is a non-refundable $25 fee to enroll in the payment plan. The payment plan allows you to pay monthly; students will not be administratively dropped from their classes so long as they make the payment by their payment plan due date. Please note that payment plans for the Fall and Spring terms can be divided up to 4 payments throughout the semester.

How to sign-up for payment plan:
1) Visit the NSC Portal, Student Center.
2) Under Finances, click on the drop-down box.
3) Click on “Enroll in Payment Plan.”

Visit NSC’s Admissions website for payment plan information.

Administrative drop date for non-payment has yet to be announced.
